Any experts in body language, when Ivan is asked about it he has a cheeky smile and says "there is no updates in recruitment at this stage"

:D

Tigers pull a King and Ace from the dogs in Reynolds and Mybe ?

Dogs get a Queen from the Tigers in Woods and missed the Ace in Tedesco when he decided to go to the Roorters

Tigers win

Off course we Still need confirmation about the Mybe signing
Bulldogs fans already starting to desert their Club
Sorry Aaron but "IT IS WHAT IT IS"
I'd hardly call Reynolds and Mbye a King and an Ace - more like a Jack and a Ten, but anyway we'll see how they go I guess.
The point is Reynolds was the heart and soul of the Bulldogs and now we have him
Mbye is their best player this year and we have him as well
Two of their most loved and best players

If we do sign Brian Kelly Ivan might even put him on the wing, he can play wing as well.

I feel like Tui could be a 14 for us next year if Benji doesn't play on and Tui kicks into gear.

Biggest issue would be if we are still rotating Hooker in 2019, maybe Josh could slot into Hooker when Liddle is having a rest.

Why? He is playing well at centre, is learning to play that position in the NRL and will be one of our two best centres (the other being Marsters).

I still think Fonua and Marsters in the centres and Kelly as a backup.

Kelly is a starter in the centers with Marsters. Fonua is nothing more than a back up until he learns to bring a consistency to his performances which includeds turning up to training on time.

NRL bad boy Kenny Edwards signs with Super League club Catalans Dragons

Less than a week after he jumped from the Parramatta Eels before he was pushed, serial off-field offender Kenny Edwards has signed an 18-month deal with English Super League club Catalans Dragons.

The 28-year-old requested and was granted a release from the Eels last week.

Edwards was charged with driving on a suspended licence after he allegedly dumped his car and ran away from police in April and is due to reappear in a Sydney court on July 10.

But despite his impending court date and lengthy list of off-field indiscretions, Catalans have thrown the New Zealand back-rower a career lifeline after his NRL career all-but ended last week.

“Me and my family are really excited and looking forward to this new challenge in the South of France,” he told the club website

“I want to come out there and be the best I can be every day and help the team to win the club’s first trophy.”

Catalans Dragons coach Steve McNamara added: “Signing a player of Kenny’s ability at this stage of the season is a big boost to our current squad.

“He is the type of player that will add something different from an attacking perspective and a player who plays with huge enthusiasm and energy.

“We look forward to welcoming him and his family to the Dragons.”

Edwards was punted by Manly and St George-Illawarra’s NYC teams for disciplinary reasons but played the first of his 70 NRL games for the Eels in 2013.

In 2015, Edwards was slapped with a nine-month ban after he was caught taking a urine sample for teammate Kaysa Pritchard.

He missed the first seven games of the 2017 NRL season following a domestic violence charge.

Edwards could be unveiled to Catalans fans as early as Sunday when the Dragons host the Leeds Rhinos.

Does anyone know if Bronson Xerri is on the radar? Big kid and with good rep. The last junior centres out of the Sharks have been good, Curtis Scott and Jess Ramien.

Good signings .... if true?
It was reported that Kelly Eagan’s next targets are a prop, edge forward and utility.
By the way .... weather in Budapest is sunny 28 degrees.

If you have time go to the underground labyrinth its great alot of historical value
Thanks for the tip.
Meeting some friends and Picking up a car here then a 4 week meandering road trip through Slovenia and Croatia. Hope we pick up some more wins before I get back.
Back on the subject of signings ..... I think we already picked up a prop signing from the Panthers lower grades. Just has not been announced yet. Not a high profile signing but solid potential with good pedigree.
If you can swing it go to Lviv in the Ukraine it will blow your socks off and if do get there i will give you come tips
Thanks but we just recently arrived from down south (Black Sea up the Danube). So will have to leave Ukraine for my bucket list.

You will eat your words tomorrow about Funoa
I can see him running Riot against to Dogs tomorrow
After being dropped I expect him to have a big game
He has something to prove
